I agree, but I think it would be better to do this one step at a time.
Let's get the things in the kernel working first to get rid of the
namespace crash, then get the bootloaders to share the code. I can't
test out a lot of the code, so I can't really do the bootloader changes,
and the bootloader changes are completely independent, anyway, once zlib
is moved.
